SOURCE: Nikon FG shutter

By "stayed up", do you mean that the mirror remained in the up position so that you could not see anything in the viewfinder or do you mean that the shutter actually remained open? I do not remember the exact features on your camera, but in general, this is what I would do.

1) Remove the film from the camera and take a picture. Note if you see anything in the viewfinder. If you see nothing, the mirror is in the up position. Verify this by removing the lens and opening the door on the camera back. Look through the lens hole. If you can see through the rectangular hole at the film plane, the shutter is open. If instead you something is obstructing the hole, the shutter is closed. In any case DO NOT TOUCH THE SHUTTER! The shutter is what is covering the hole.

2) If the mirror is in the up position, check to see if your camera has a feature that allows locking the mirror in the up position. Some cameras have this feature to allow use of lenses with very short focal lengths. If this is the case, simply unlock the mirror.

3) If the shutter is the problem, your shutter speed may be set to "T", which stands for time. In the time exposure mode, you press the shutter release once to open the shutter and a second time to close the shutter. Cameras with a "T" setting also have a "B" setting, which stands for bulb. This is a throwback to the old days when it was common to use air-powered shutter releases rather then cable releases. The bulb was a rubber bulb that you squeezed to force air through a tube and push a pin to activate the shutter. The "B" setting keeps the shutter open as long as you hold the shutter release in, but as soon as you take your finger off the shutter release, the shutter closes. Both of these settings are used to make timed exposures. If you find that the problem was that the shutter was set to "T", set the shutter speed to 1/25th second or so and try again. The following sequence should occur; the mirror will flip up and the viewfinder image will disappear, the shutter will open for the prescribed time and close, the mirror will return to the down position and you will again see through the viewfinder.

If this does not work, you may need to take it in for repair.

Nikon FG. Replaced 3V battery. On the M90 setting the film advances OK. On 'program' or other settings it will only advance once and after shutter fires it will not advance until put on...


M90 is a battery independent setting - it requires no battery power to function. If it won't advance until put on M90 from other settings, then either you're not allowing for proper exposure, have the settings incorrectly set (film speed, etc), or you have shutter issues. The shutter is electronically controlled on all settings except M90. In the auto setting, your lense MUST be set to the smallest aperture (biggest number). On any other setting, you can use it however you'd like. I'd suggest unloading any film, setting the shutter speed dial to 1/125 or so, opening the back and looking thru and firing the shutter. If it's not snapping open and immediately closed, theres an issue and you need to consult a repair technician either locally, through Nikon, or through KEH Camera online.

Hi, see if the batteries or the battery are installed correctly (positive side as the bat. cover shows + sign).
Mesure the voltage = 3 volts.
Look at the battery cover and body contact, and see if there is contact battery leakage;clean if necessary.
Also the counter should be in 1, nothing happens, the counter SW dirty or defective contact.

Other Main PCB bad.

Two SR-44, S-76, or LR-44 batteries  OR one CR-1 3N battery, assuming you really mean the FG. Other Nikon 35mm cameras may need other batteries.

Type of battery


Just a comment on the first answer: Use only silver oxide batteries (SR44). Using lithium batteries will not harm your camera but they have an unstable voltage, they start off a little over 1.5v and drift down to around 1.35v just before they no longer work. They are fine for non-precision equipment but not for your camera as they can cause the lightmeter to be as much as four stops out.

SR44's are at the correct 1.55v and remain at that level almost until the very end. They cost a bit more than lithium cells but are well worth the money, just make sure that the packaging actually says "silver oxide" as some manufacturers put the SR44 number on the packaging of LR44 lithium cells.

Nikon fg light meter


Ah, I figured this out. It's not the battery, since the light isn't dimmed. I had the same problem with the light being stuck at 60/120, and it was just flashing. There's a certain mechanism in the camera that only allows the light meter to start working when the exposure count is at 1. So when you load your film, you have to take 2 or 3 exposures, and crank it, before the light meter kicks in.

Cleaning out dirt and dust inside nikon fg camera


FG's are pretty tough old cameras. You can use a cloth and a lenspen brush, but be very careful of the shutter curtain...its delicate and if you damage it you might as well get another FG ($30 or so on Ebay). My first Nikon was an FG-20...still works like new.
